We are looking for mentors!

Arriving in a new country is never easy. Our students have to learn a lot about Switzerland as a country and society, and how it works. Therefore we want to support them with mentors at eye level throughout the whole program. The mentors work on a voluntary basis. More information concerning the mentoring you find here (in German).
